Thank you for the Maverick links Mark. Last live concert I went to in Reno November 1996. Maybe five to ten rows back and the ticket was free to me.

In memory of my recent loss of Latte and Ziggy.

And the new life in my life Cookie, Homeless and Midnight.

Julie nothing personal. I can only support three cities on Utopia unless I contribute. I prefer that donation to go to Seti.
It seems you have it sorted.
Thanks for the stats Michael.

Sorry to hear that Julie. I supported Rozz for at least four years. Now it is your turn. You are already supported on Yarolds, but the biggy is Utopia.

Not sure why you can't be bothered. Open an account. Make sure your settings are set at "all". Then click Start once a day and you are good to go.
No manual clicking on your part needed.

Good to see you here Scarecrow and Kris. Made a batch of Corned Beef and Cabbage for the office this year again. It was free, due to a tip from a very happy Client. Everyone loved it.

I was taught, bring it to a boil, then let it sit on the burner after turning it off, for 15 minites. I will reduce it to ten minutes, as I always wondered about the green ring.
Thank you Angela

Here is the fifth instalment of Whiskey's


So let's have a thread for all the Mini-City stuff. Stats, congrat's, etc. all in one place.

Let's start with a little history...

Before the 5th of October 2008 the populations of the cities founded by Whiskey, Moon, Uli and Eagle were increasing at a rate of approximately 18 per day.

On 8th of October 2008 the population increases were in the hundreds per day.

Now they are in the thousands, the higher numbers the result of using various click exchanges.

Pictures of the Mini-Cities are generated from information in a database. Each independent click on a city's page (per 24 hours) contributes to the development of the city. As well as population, the city model includes industry, transport, security and the environment, which deteriorate if the city is neglected, causing people to leave! You can create a city by visiting "Click exchanges" (listed below) automate the clicking and increase click counts, but if you start using them straight away on a new city, you miss all the early evolution of buildings etc in the display, so I suggest you build the city just using real clicks for a while first.

Here are links to the previous mini-city threads:

Whiskey's Mini-City News IV
Whiskey's Mini-City News III
The New Mini-City News
Mini-Cities News

Here is a summary of the click exchanges which have been mentioned in previous threads:
Idarionis Hydra
Utopia Click Exchange
Autoclicks (in French, follow the English link for pages in English)
Yarolds (no information about this is available until you create an account)

Also on Idarionis Hydra, msattler runs 'Team Seti':
If you are not on a team there and would like to join him, you would be most welcome. Team members can receive extra visits, either by changing their IP address or by drinking from the Youth Fountain as a single-IP user.

The kitties invite you to join them on 'Team Seti'.

Meow meow.

If you use Firefox (and in some cases related browsers,) the following add-ons are relevant:
Flashblock: replace Flash content by buttons -- reduces mini-city page load times;
Cookiewhitelist: cookie management -- otherwise you will have thousands of extra cookies cluttering up your browser;
NoScript: JavasScript etc management -- decide which sites may or may not execute JavaScript;
LeechBlock: block particular sites completely -- avoid sites you do not wish to support
BetterPrivacy: delete Flash supercookies -- recommended by The Dreamer.

The featured mini-cities are:
Seti City: this is "the" seti@home mini-city created for us all (and of course our kitties) by Mark.
Skofus: this was a Ruined City adopted and rescued in true Nevil Shute fashion by Uli.
Ariz Moon City: Miss Moon's mini-city.
DvorakSociey: created for Antonin by KWSN Ekky Ekky Ekky.
UAE Residents: Whiskey's mini-city.
rwrwton: Bill's mini-city.
city of rOZZ: (Belgian) Julie's mini-city.
Thirteenth Tribe: Sparky's mini-city.
En-Ki-Du: (U.S.) Julie's mini-city, currently deliberately receiving no automated clicks
KWSN, TFFE: cities for the corresponding teams.
Utopia ref: used to receive clicks from Utopia only, as a result of a single account using one IP address, currently not being updated.

A bump for Julie.

Just open an account at Utopia in Firefox and add flash block or what ever it is called.
Then click it once a day once you have the settings right. PM or e-mail me if you need help.

I agree with you Simon. It seems they let the most idiots out here on Humpday.
One of my biggest gripes is, the red light runners on a major intersection. Seeing four plus on my way to work and home is common. Most are male drivers (Sorry), but some are female with kids in the back.
Most the time, I get where I am going at the same time and don't put any life in danger.

@Vic, here in Stockton, the biggest speedlimit I have seen is 45 mph on a mostly Business Route.

Most of I 5 here is under construction, so please drive sensibly.

Sad news. As I have to rearange my Library any way, I will set his books aside for a reread. A few inherited books have been set a side for a new read anyway.

Yes the GPUUG had made some very successfull fundraisers in the past, but I am not sure how active they are at the momemt.

And for me this is unfortunate. I usually made my donations when there was an active fundraiser sticky on the forums; for some reason, it always inspired me to donate. That being said, I feel inspired by Spud's perhaps unintentional fundraising trend. Thank you, Spud1200.

You gave $50.00
to SETI@home
on March 15, 2015
via Visa

Thank you Akio.

Thanks for the info. I papertowl it up first, then follow it up with 409. No problems so far, as I am only dealing with some residuals.

The doggies have adjusted, but the kitties are still a hold over.

This stuborn Human will win the battle in the end.

Ok, this shows me what I need to know. Thanks for the stats Michael.

@Julie, I will be dropping you from Utopia, since it only takes two click, you can now take care of this, like you did in the past.

I will be adding Whiskey again tomorrow.

For those who don't know, Pete is the one that got concerned about Whiskey and got him home. He also made a couple of visits and delivered a shirt and personalized card, made by Johnney Guiness to him.

I think the Kitties are ajusting to the dogs and Homeless the new Kitty is adjusting too.
Three counter with three cats. Lots of disinfectants in use, which I am not to happy about. But as long as they will learn to get along, I will do the cleaning with the bleach stuff.

Thanks James. We are registered with the IRS, have to have a certain amount of training, be current on our own taxes, registered in States that have that requirement and up to date on most tax law changes.
By most I mean, personal return I am current on, Corporation and Partnerships, well no.

Cudos to those who do their own taxes, but do yourself a favor and read Pub 17 first on everything that may impact your tax situation.

I have done my own for 36 years and paid for 14 years.

I only got challenged once personally and won.

Professionally a bit more, but not much. Honesty is the key here and proof.

I decided to name her Homeless. Not sure where she hangs out during the day. But come nightime, this is the place.
She comes to the Kitty Window, but not yet in the House, so Tessie and Tinkerbell have their space.
Tonight she got her first evening treat, a third of a small can of wet food.
Once I can trap her for a Vet trip and can afford the cost, I would like to get her chipped.

Midnight and Ruta are saying hello.

Yes Cookie and Midnight are like little Children, digging, chewing on comp cables and sock stealers.

Hopefully I will be able to post some pics on Sunday.
